1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this bag - it's NOT cabin-approved, 21 May 2013
This review is from: Compass Classic 19 Inch Cabin Approved Hand Luggage Bag (Olive/Tan) (Apparel)
Don't buy this bag!

It is NOT "cabin approved" because its width is 27cm. The maximum width the airlines accept as cabin baggage is 25 cm (BA), 24 cm (Aer Lingus, Flybe), 20 cm (Ryanair). Calling it "cabin approved" therefore contravenes the UK's Trades Description Act.

Moreover if you buy it Amazon will refuse a refund unless it is returned within 14 days (which it won't be if you bought it just before - and for the purposes of - going on two weeks holiday).

This time limit, however, is in direct contravention of the UK's Sale of Good Act which specifies six months.

Amazon will simply procrastinate in the hope you will just go away since you've only lost £18.
